“What would be the best interest for our customers and what would the best interest for us? Let’s find a middle ground upfront as opposed to reaching out to the customers and then provide the service that may not be in the best interest of the customers or and have their privacy is being jeopardized. So that is our responsibility. And as a society, as a technology providers, we have to look at that. We have to make ourselves responsible for that. The platforms that we are putting outside, we have to make it our own. Our job is to do it right from the get-go and not wait for the others to force us to do it.”
They discuss how the TELUS team is ‘internally disrupting’ itself to stay ahead of the curve and keep up with emerging technology, the biggest challenges facing the telecommunications industry and why telecom companies need to compete not only with each other but with companies in the tech space more broadly.
